Caring for older people in the Borders is extremely important to Eildon.

Are you committed to delivering excellent service provision for older people, and can you support our tenants to stay connected to their local community and help them to find creative solutions to the challenges they may face?

Our Scheme Assistants will play an important role in the team at Dovecot Court in Peebles, Eildon’s Extra Care Housing (ECH) service for older people. The shift patterns vary over 7 days and can be discussed during the interview process.

You will assist in the provision of the ECH Service, by ensuring all communal areas are clean, hygienic and tidy while working with the team to provide a warm, friendly and safe environment for tenants.

You will need to have an interest in people, a positive can-do attitude, a willingness to learn and the ability to multitask. Most importantly you should be able to demonstrate a clear understanding of Eildon’s vision and values.

In return Eildon offer a competitive reward package and a range of benefits. This role requires membership of the Disclosure Scotland Protecting Vulnerable Groups Scheme.
